The Olmsted Landscape at Moraine Farm
Since 1880 when Frederick Law Olmsted designed a gentleman’s farm as a summer escape for the Phillips family of Boston, Moraine Farm has evolved from a private residence to the site for a variety of 21st century activities. Today, the Waldorf School at Moraine Farm, The Trustees of Reservations, Essex County Greenbelt and Project Adventure coexist and support each other on the property. The natural beauty of the farm makes it an excellent venue for a special event.
This website is owned, developed and maintained by the Friends of the Olmsted Landscape at Moraine Farm (FOLMF). We volunteers are dedicated to preserving and protecting this historic landscape at Moraine Farm. We are committed to working with all of Moraine Farm’s owners, partners and stewards to preserve and protect this property, while also accommodating change consistent with this historic landscape's evolving nature.

"Moraine Farm (Project No. 12297) in North Beverly, Massachusetts, is a remarkable but not well-known property, retaining much of the ambiance and character that Frederick Law Olmsted intended for this private commission 140 years ago."
